Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

Adobe Goes Live with GoLive

Adobe Goes Live with GoLive -- Adobe GoLive 4.0 for Macintosh - the eponymously renamed CyberStudio visual Web page editor and site management tool - ships this week; an announcement is expected Tuesday morning at Seybold Seminars in Boston. Adobe acquired GoLive, the makers of CyberStudio, in early 1999 and recently revealed the name change on their Web site. A Windows version is slated for the second quarter of 1999. The product's 4.0 release includes hundreds of bug fixes and improvements, though 3.2 may have been a more appropriate revision number. The new version carries the ability to manage URLs embedded in QuickTime movies and Flash animation files and is substantially faster. According to posts on the independent GoLive Talk list, the program is also much more stable. The new version also tweaks and improves support for JavaScript, DHTML, Cascading Style Sheets, and FTP.

Abode has published a confusing smorgasbord of upgrade pricing for U.S. and Canadian customers. Owners of any previous version of CyberStudio Pro or Personal Edition can choose an electronic download without printed manuals for $69; those owners or any registered owner of PageMill 3.0 for Mac or Windows can opt for a shrink-wrapped copy direct from Adobe for $99 plus shipping. Adobe also lists other options, including a bundle with Adobe ImageStyler and Adobe ImageReady. Adobe GoLive 4.0's list price is $299. [GF]
